THERE IS NO NEED FOR A REFERRAL SIGNATURE OR INCOME ELIGIBILITY AT THIS TIME.

DUE TO COVID-19, WE NOW PROVIDE CURBSIDE PICKUP OF GROCERIES ON FURBER LANE.

 HOUSEHOLDS WILL RECEIVE PRE-PACKED BAGS OF DRY, COLD AND FROZEN FOODS AS WELL AS FRESH PRODUCE.

WE ASK THAT NEW FAMILIES FILL OUT OUR ONLINE PANTRY REGISTRATION FORM or PRINT AND FILL OUT OUR PAPER FORM.

2021 Update
 

  • In the first two months of 2021 we gave groceries to over 1,500 families, providing food for 5,200 adults, children and seniors.
     

  • We had the largest day of need in the history of our pantry when we gave a full complement of fresh and dry groceries to 261 families in just four hours.

 

While we receive donations from vendor partners and  specific foods are free funded by the Massachusetts Emergency Food Assistance Program (MEFAP), every week we purchase fresh produce, dairy or eggs, grocery items, diapers and personal care products.

 

Local families greatly appreciate what they receive and we are very grateful for your financial support
